When science combines with fiction, what we get in return is something completely out of our comprehension. The R2-D2s, a visit to the Edmund’s Planet, and the infinity stones, science fiction is a genre that leads us to a completely new dimension. Science fiction or Sci-fi is one of the most imaginative genres ever. Everything that we see as a product of Sci-fi is nothing less than an execution extraordinaire.

The sci-fi genre molds our perception about artificial intelligence and allows us to see beyond the stereotypical mindset that we have always had about technology and the future.

Author of the best-sellers, Sapiens and Homo Deus, Yuval Noah Harari calls Sci-fi as the most artistic film genre that gives our minds ‘a teaser’ of all that we can achieve in the years to come. Since we are in 2020 and from here, we’ll only see growth in the application and amalgamation of AI into our daily routines, by watching Sci-fi movies we can prepare ourselves for the future. 

Sneak-Peak into the History of Sci-Fi               

Sci-fi movies surfaced around the time when silent movies were still a thing. Since there was a limited number of software, equipment, and opportunities back in those times, creators were bound to come up with gnarly visuals. Speaking of which, George Melies created the first Sci-fi movie, which told the story of a spacecraft that went to the moon. Relative to what we see in the sci-fi movies today, the first one had some glitchy graphics, ‘too basic to look at’ animation and almost non-existent VFX. However, we’ll happily cut it some slack, since it happened way back in time. Besides this, the credit of sci-fi films also goes in the hands of the literature of that time. Frankenstein, as well as, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde are two of the most prominent literary pieces that garnered massive attention as science fiction.

Fast-forwarding it to the 00’s, sci-fi movies finally began to have a completely new perspective, and creators of such movies focused more on the fantasy themes and less on the typical ‘time travel’ theme. Before we conclude this section, let’s take a quick look at the research that was conducted on a sample of male and female viewers. The research revealed that 76% of the males, while 62% of the females from the selected sample, preferred to watch sci-fi movies.

Reasons why Sci-fi Tops All the other Genres

Science Fiction genre is the perfect combination of science, assumptions and a whole lot of fantasies. The mysticism, the magic and the portrayal of the ‘impossible,’ it is nonetheless mind-boggling to see all the untapped realms through which science fiction can take us. If you have a thing for sci-fi movies, then you can stream them online using your high-speed internet connection from Spectrum. To ensure you get an uninterrupted internet experience, Spectrum internet customer service team is available for you 24/7 to resolve your problems instantly.

Anyways, pivoting back to Sci-fi movies, let’s talk about how such movies have inspired the latest technology that we use today. Remember the communicator in Star Trek? That communication device eventually paved the way for the invention of cellular phones. Other than technology, Sci-fi movies have covered various ‘deliberately evaded’ topics as well. Maybe this is the reason why sci-fi movies are controversial to perceive.

The Final Word

Science fiction movies have evolved tremendously ever since their advent. These movies have also played a huge role in transforming the film industry. Although it takes a lot of effort and money to produce such a movie, the product that we get on the other side of it is what makes everything worth all the effort. Until now, we have seen some of the most mind-boggling sci-fi movie creations ever, wonder what more there is in store that we can see in the years ahead.
